Pre-Black Friday iPad deal takes up to $69 off the 2020 model

Despite the new 2020 iPad having only been announced this September, you can already save as much as $69 on one at Best Buy. The My Best Buy-exclusive sale drops the entry-level 32GB model down to just $279.99 and takes close to $70 off the 128GB version marking its lowest price yet. To see this early Black Friday price, be sure to log in with your free My Best Buy account.

Like the 7th-gen before it, the most-recent iPad has a gorgeous 10.2-inch Retina display with a 2160-by-1620 pixel resolution. You’ll also get a Touch ID fingerprint sensor for security plus an 8MP 1080p camera on the back with a 1.2MP 720p camera on the front. The display supports the first-gen Apple Pencil as well as the Smart Keyboard.

The main upgrade to the affordable iPad is the upgraded to the A12 Bionic chip, making it a pretty decent upgrade over the 7th- generation iPad it’s replacing. Though not as powerful as the A14 in the new iPad Air, the A12 chip will ensure the entry-level iPad is super speedy and able to keep up with most work you’ll want to do.

According to Apple, the A12 Bionic will make the iPad two times faster than the top-selling Windows laptop, three times faster than the top-selling Android tablet, and six times faster than the top-selling Chromebook.
